Health, Wellness, and Vitality are common goals among both health care patients and providers. We all desire a life full of energy, creativity, happiness and purpose. Together we can help each other find balance in our busy lives and reach these lofty goals. We all share the common yet profound experience known as “Life”; however each of us has an individual path that we must follow. Along the way unexpected illnesses may develop. Our physical, mental, or spiritual strength may waver and our bodies and minds follow suit. Sometimes expert medical guidance offers an easy fix, more often the condition goes beyond medications and the healing must come from a deeper source. If you are ready to become an active participant in your own health and would like the healing journey to begin, then you have discovered the right place.
Dr. Bell is trained in both conventional and integrative medicine modalities to help you achieve your optimal health. He will work with you to find the source of your current condition and help you utilize both cutting edge evidence based Western Medicine modalities and ancient healing techniques from the East. Dr. Bell will incorporate your physical, mental, psychological, social and spiritual health into the healing process. Together you will co-create a “Personalized Wellness Plan” that is specific to your needs, beliefs and goals.
Dr. Bell is seen on a consultation basis only, he does not practice as a primary care physician. However, he will be happy to work in conjunction with your PCP and other specialists in order to create a truly integrated treatment plan. The healing process begins as you fill out a detailed patient intake form which has been specially created to provide you and Dr. Bell with valuable insights into your personal history, belief system and lifestyle. The initial consultation involves a comprehensive 60 minute visit and a subsequent 45 minute follow-up appointment will be arranged two to three weeks later. Additional visits will be scheduled as needed. During your appointment, we will discuss nutrition, physical activity, sleep patterns, stressors, family and work relationships, hobbies and any medications or supplements you are taking. Throughout the consultation, Dr. Bell will weave Orthomolecular-Functional Medicine approaches with ancient Eastern healing wisdom from Ayurveda (the world’s oldest continuously practiced traditional healing system).
Dr. Bell believes that an individual can greatly contribute to their own healing through making healthy lifestyle choices which will improve your mood while simultaneously modifying the epigenetic expression of your DNA. These synergistic natural phenomenon help encourage the body’s natural healing processes. You and Dr. Bell will work together to develop a collaborative and holistic treatment plan that is custom tailored to your individual needs.
“I am sincerely humbled and honored to embark upon this journey of healing with you.”
